Prichard police investigates fatal shooting at Ridge Manor Apartments

The Prichard Police Department and the Mobile County Sheriff's Office are investigating a fatal shooting at the Ridge Manor Apartments on Wolfe Ridge Road.

Witnesses we spoke to say the shooting happened around 11:30 p.m. That’s when they say they heard several shots. Michael Evans, who lives at the apartment complex, says when he came outside to see what was going on, he found the victim lying beside his car. He says he immediately called 911 and was directed to give the man CPR, but Evans says he was already dead.

Evans told us the victim was a security guard that always checked on all of the residents and had just finished his rounds.

“He loses his life for $8 an hour, or whatever security guards are making now adays? It’s ridiculous,” said Evans. “Taking people’s lives is not the thing. It’s not a game. It’s permanent.”

Right now this shooting is under investigation.
